The Redwood Day Athletics Program seeks to enrich the social, emotional, and physical well-being of student athletes. Students of varying abilities participate and enjoy their involvement while coaches emphasize values of commitment, integrity, self-discipline, sportsmanship, and teamwork.


Athletics plays a significant role in the Middle School experience with 75 percent of students playing for at least one Redwood Day team. Student athletes of varying abilities have the opportunity to learn and grow in a supportive environment, led by our dynamic coaches. Beginning in 6th grade, students can participate as members of our various teams: cross country, flag football, and soccer in the fall; basketball in the winter; and ultimate frisbee, volleyball, and track & field in the spring. Please visit our Athletics page to learn more.
Redwood Day participates in a league with 15 independent and public middle schools in the East Bay. At the end of the year, we honor the efforts of our athletes and coaches at our annual Athletics Banquet. Our program has several goals designed to meet the developmental needs of Middle School students:

  • to provide a physical, yet safe, outlet for students to find joy in expressing themselves athletically
  • to develop and improve athletic skills and abilities
  • to provide a level of athletic competitiveness that is both developmentally healthy and appropriate
  • to instill a love for the game
